SOCIETY SOUNDINGS • Elected Council Installed

David A. Brooks
First Paragraph

The members of the newly-elected Council of The Oceanography Society were formally installed during the business meeting held in Monterey on August 29, 1989. The ceremony culminated the process, begun at the Society’s inception, of assuring a broad-based and democratic governance of the Society. In addition, the Draft Bylaws of the Society were approved by the membership, formally putting into effect the guiding document for the new Council. At the same time, the Interim Council, which had drafted the Bylaws and the Society’s Articles of Incorporation, was dissolved, completing the transfer of authority and responsibility to the elected representatives of the membership.
